Freedman’s Sydney Cup Warning

Anthony Freedman is considering winding back the clock 40 years by sending his Victoria Derby winner Warning to the Sydney Cup in April.

Warning, a Mill Park raised graduate who was sold at the Adelaide Magic Millions Yearling Sale runs for his second classic win on Saturday in the Randwick Guineas (1600m) ahead of rising to the 2000 metres of the Rosehill Guineas (March 21) and the 2400m of the ATC Derby (April 4), before Freedman decides on a shot at the $2 million Sydney Cup (3200m) on April 11.

“The Derby is certainly the plan and we may even look at a Sydney Cup following that just depending on how he’s going,” Freedman said.

“He is that sort of horse and it is a nice race in its own right now. Obviously, he’d have to be in very good form after his next couple of runs.”

Warning, who ran seventh when first-up in the 1400-metre Hobartville Stakes at Rosehill on February 22, has been weighted at 51 kilograms for the Sydney Cup.

“He ran the other day and ran well,” Freedman said. “He’s starting to get into his right range now. He’ll appreciate Randwick and he’ll enjoy the mile. He can run very well.”
